>> welcome back. the patent trial of the century resumes. apple is trying to prove that samsung copies its idea for the iphone and ipad. scott says samsung lawyers better come to court ready to be contrite. >> yes. good morning. the lawyers have been on the wrong side of the judge over the last couple of days, the federal judge expressed her annoyance that samsung lawyers are talking to reporters about evidence she said should not be in court. samsung argues what they talk about outside of court doesn't count. early in the trial she even
warned samsung lawyers to stop fidgeting so much when apple was talking. judge coe upheld a previous ruling that samsung couldn't show this movie clip to jurors from 2001. in the clip it shows one of the astronauts using what appears to be a tablet computer. the argument being that the tablets are not a new idea. it's jobs friday. in a few minutes the labor department will release the number of jobs gained. don't break out the party hats. nobody expecting anything to celebrate. let's look ahead to the trading day. jackie deangelis is live. good morning. >> good morning to you, scott. the question i have is do investors dislike facebook, the stock plunging to a low of $19.82 per share yesterday. the facebook frenzy has fizzled for the moment. the stock price is down almost 50% since its initial public offering. and linkedin, the biggest
professional networking media site reported earnings on revenue of 228.2 million. this was compared to wall street's estimates of $216.5 million. shares were trading up in late trading the stock up more than 45% on the year. >> jackie, have a great weekend. we're 13 minutes away from the job numbers. we'll have them in a bit. >> we'll reserve the party horns then. we'll save them for the olympics. >> 5:17. more from the london olympics. remember back in the beijing games this guy usain bolt considered the fastest man in the world. this weekend we'll find out if he'll do more of that lightning bolt running, maybe a gold medal or a world record. >> bob redell is set to find out how fast he really is. that one man who says bolt is about to hit the human speed limit. >> even a bolt of lightning has its limits.
>> usain bolt is a great showman but it's three years now since he broke the world record. >> to break his record of 9.58 seconds usain bolt would almost have to violate the laws of nature. according to a professor. >> the prediction is 9.48. >> by his calculations, 9.48 seconds is the fastest man can run in 100 meters. >> running that kind of speed is sort of inhuman anyway. >> no kidding. if you were to clock usain bolt with your car the speedometer would briefly top out at around 27 miles an hour. >> i go back to history. >> he bases it on historical running time. and a formula that takes about as much time to write as a person walking the 100 meters. >> it lets you predict rare
events. >> realized i think this is a c. >> no, it's 1 over -- >> you think there is a human speed limit? >> yeah, but i think it's -- >> chase better than 9.48. >> i take it personally. you put a limit on it like that's a target. >> people don't like to hear that. people assume that things are always can get better, faster. at some point they can't. >> the professor said look at horton. they haven't gotten faster. dogs since the 1970s. women since the 1980s. >> you expect men to plateau in the next 10 to 20 years. >> i would love to have usain bolt or anybody do better than that. just so we know the human body can do something unpredictable. >> bob redell, "today in the bay." >> pretty cool way to look at it.
usain bolt. sbob a classic. what's happening, young lady? >> a good looking morning for a jog or a run. good morning to you. it's always easier to watch it on tv here on nbc. proud home of the summer games. and we're going to get that action started at 9:00. starting with this live look here, beautiful conditions over san jose. it's clear and crisp out there. great time for walking that dog as the sun comes up. let's get right to it. temperatures are comfortable. 54 in confran. and 54 degrees to start you out in novato and san francisco, 61 in sunnyvale. that's comfortable if you want to do outdoor activities it will get on the hot side later on. but you probably don't need your ac in the south bay with 82 degrees is the forecasted high. high pressure still in control. the jet stream has taken a drop to the south and for us what that means is we're going to see cooler conditions, courtesy of a
stronger on shore flow. we'll see coastal low clouds and as a result the westerly wind will carry in the cool ocean breeze. a nice evening, great evening to make outdoor barbecue plans. a gorgeous sunset. 68 in san francisco, 80 in redwood city, and in san jose, 82 degrees, not too shabby. 89 degrees in livermore. average is 88. then we fall below as we head to saturday, sunday, the low to mid 80s return and the upper 80s, a little hotter through next week but not too bad. no extremes, no record-breaking heat. just the low 90s as we head into the middle of next week. here's mike. >> looking at saturday and sunday that looks great for fremont. we'll be at the festival. a lot of folks here westbound, the commute slowing into the 50s out of the altamont pass.
the dublin interchange, close to the limit as you approach 680. your slowing kicking in at the interchange. a live look outside shows you spots for the east bay. north through oakland, no slowing from the coliseum to downtown, no backup at the bay bridge. on the foster city side of the san mateo bridge. we're losing the east bay w low clouds creeping in but the travel moving smoothly. there are more cars now, the volume picking up. a live shot from 101 under the interchange northbound, your commute direction starting to pick up but in the 50s and 60s even north, 680 we see the volume with that burst. >> thanks so much. 5:22. the sailing competition with no competitors. we'll tell you why lackluster interest could sink the america's cup race.
>> welcome back. it's 5:25 on the nose. looks like the oracle racing team is not going to have a lot of competition defending the america's cup trophy next summer. four challengers meeting the deadline to enter the yacht race in san francisco next year. as many as 14 sailing teams had expressed interest but apparently the sluggish world economy is partly to blame for the low turnout. organizers insisting that san francisco can expect a big time economic boost of about $1 billion and 8,000 new jobs. >> a piece of military history that's been a long time secret on treasure island. bay ship and yacht recently bought the hughes mining barge from the navy. it's a submersible barge. while it's getting a lot of attention the fascinating part
is what is inside. the barge is holding the declassified sea shadow, a ship secretly built in the bay area during the cold war. it will be used as a dry dock. >> interesting. 5:26. let's get back to meteorologist christina loren to find out what's happening. the weekend's coming. >> it's a feel good friday as you like to call it jon kelley. temperatures are so comfortable out there for any outdoor activities. throughout the day it's not going to be too hot especially when you consider we hit 98 inland yesterday. today 89 degrees at 4:00. 79 bay side. 68 at the coast. change is around the corner for the all important weekend. first, let's check your drive. >> looking around the corner, a lot of corners around the maze. we have construction crews, getting ready to make the move away from the roadway which may cause slowing. we have the single bore and the
distraction for some. speeds just above 55. oakland, no dip in the speeds despite construction fruitvale up to fifth. watch for traffic breaks. i'll warn you if they tell me about them. back to you. >> 5:27. still ahead i guess we can call her golden gabby. that's america's sweetheart. the new one crowned an olympic champion. >> she is excited about it. how can you not be. it's been a great set of london games. a live look at the caldron burning at the olympic stadium.
>> new this morning the july jobs report just coming into our newsroom. we'll tell if you the economy is sluggish or surging just ahead. scott mcgrew along to crunch the number. >> mary lou, nastia and now gabby. >> a gorgeous day in the golden state. temperatures have dropped to the 80s inland. 70s bay side, 60s at the coast.
changes we'll take through in the full forecast. >> that visibility could be an issue for some. we're watching the north bay. i'll show you the the slower spots. >> a live look outside, that is beautiful. call it a gold medal look over san jose. a beautiful thing. get your friday rolling on this august 3rd, this is "today in the bay." >> it is 5:30. good morning. always happy to have you along. i'm jon kelley. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon. how can we not begin with the summer olympics. a live look at london where a new torch passed in women's gymnastics. a golden after glow for gabby douglas t 16-year-old now crowned the women's all around champion. douglas acted much older than her years putting together four steady confident performances
that seals her place in gymnastics history. she is the first african-american to hold that honor and to win olympic gymnastics gold. the first woman to hold that dominique dawes couldn't contain her excite am tweeting out i'm going to have a heart time falling asleep. still on cloud 9 for gabby douglas. joining the chorus, oprah winfrey tweeted omg i'm so thrill forward gabby. flowing happy tears. >> tweets from all over. plenty of accolades for michael phelps. he continues his golden streak with his latest duel in the pool. phelps and lochte side by side. phelps taking that gold, edging lochte close behind for the silver. and phelps is not done. he has two more events to go. he could rack up more medals for his history in the making. coming up at 5:45, raj mathai,
reports live from london with a preview of what will hopefully be phelps' grand finale. >> b.a.r.t. is loosening up its rules and could make your commute more cramped. christie smith is live in oakland where for the first time people can bring their pike bikes on trains. >> good morning. this may end up being the opposite of friday light. b.a.r.t. is conducting an experiment. every friday in august they are allowing people to bring bicycles on the train into the stations, what's different is you can do that during the peak hours. you have a chance. b.a.r.t. is seeking feedback from commuters how this works. they have a series of questions on line, about five of them. that could end up loosening the rules for how bikes are allowed on b.a.r.t. bikes are not allowed in the commute direction 7 to 9 in the
morning and cycling hats grown more popular b.a.r.t. is easing restrictions. this is a first. >> you see a lot of potential and that's part of the reason we're doing the pilot to see if it works if we can accommodate bikes and two, do we see more passengers and more folks with their bikes. >> reporter: now, one thing to note is that b.a.r.t. is not adding more trains during this whole thing they are putting on so it may be quite crowded depending how it goes. they expect to curveball the number of naem bring bikes on the train. there are four in the east bay. you can leave your bikes there. again this is every friday in august and if you want to weigh in on it you can go to b.a.r.t.gov. >> just in the july jobs report has been released to business
and tech reporter scott mcgrew has the numbers and doing what he is great at he explains what they mean. >> earlier i had said that don't break out the party hats and the horns. maybe one tiny little toot of a horn. 163,000 jobs were added in the month of july, that is far more than expected. and that is slightly good news. like i said, one little toot of the horn. the unemployment rate rose to 8.3%. as i have said this is a number you can ignore. a tenth of a percent one way or the other doesn't make that much of a difference. the unemployment rate is actually a phone survey, somebody uses the phone to say are you employed, are you looking for a job. it's statistically fairly good but not a number you need to worry too much about compared to the 163,000 jobs gained which is the biggest gain since last
february. politicians of course will pounce on this latest jobs report. coming up we'll have a live report from washington with a look at what today's numbers will mean for president obama, his challenger governor romney as well on the campaign trail. >> a little toot of the horn better than a wa-wa. give us something to cheer about. >> and the fog horn sounds more wa-wa. it's out there this morning. you'll hear that on the coastline. a lot of fog out there. and throughout bay area as well, san francisco bay filled with clouds. by about 9:00 the marine layer will push out to sea. beautiful, beautiful sun rise shaping up. we continue that futurecast, stop it at noon today, mostly clear all the way across the greater bay area. even some breakup of that marine
layer so we're going to see a nice day. carrying in the cool ocean breeze. and whaels we get to benefit from when it comes to the onshore flow. good air quality across the board. open up the windows, breathe it in today. you might not need to run your ac if you can bear 89 degrees. 79, that's what we expect in places like oakland, 68 degrees at the coast and temperatures are going to drop off even more into the weekend so i'll take you through that forecast, stay tuned for that. if you've got to get out the door mike is here to help. >> construction crews should start clearing. this is between 37 and at is son avenue. we do see slowing north thereof so that might abdistraction. the orange on my map, this mean there is is fog in the area. highway 1 on the left and 101
through petaluma. may be a bit of an issue but no surprises here. we'll see how things are coming up. i wanted to explain the flashing lights. the crew is moving the cones. just some phones, moving it for the kmorning commute for the morning drive in to the city. live look outside shows you a smooth drive for fremont 880 southbound with all of these headlights past the struck scales and no problems between the dumb parten and the san mateo bridge. we'll look to the san mateo bridge. south i meant west. westbound 92. no delays along the peninsula. >> the internal compass is working. buster floyd mayweather now a free man after serving two months of a three-month
sentence. he greeted family and friends including his 12-year-old daughter. mayweather was jailed after pleading guilty to attacking his former girlfriend in front of their young children. >> 5:38. coming up an olympic comeback story out of berkeley. >> a live look outside, keeping our guys on the morning commute. giving us all sorts of viewpoints from the bay area.
violence. the vote come as day after kofi annan resigned as peace envoy to syria. he said he cannot do his job when members of the 15-nation security council don't support his role. >> now to decision 2012. and the impact today's jobs report, a little positivity to talk about. how it will affect the race to the white house. >> we turn to brian mooar live on capitol hill. good morning. >> reporter: breaking news from the labor department. the latest labor numbers, july's jobs report 163,000 jobs added. better than the 100,000 expected but the unemployment rate picks up from 8.2 to 8.3%. that is bad symbolism for president obama. the president has been trying to make the case that the economy, though in low gear, is still moving forward. mitt romney sure to hammer the
president later today on these numbers which can best be described as many somewhat lackluster. at least it wasn't like last m. expected 100,000 new jobs, up around 80,000. so today doing about half again as good as expected. certainly something the president will be trumpeting but this is going to be a long log, the president will say that, mitt romney will say that later today. again, the u.s. economy moving forward but at a creep. back to you. >> thank you, brian. >> back to the summer olympic games and we take you across the pond. we can take you there. a live look at that torch. but right now it's going to be a big night for a bay area olympic swimmer. >> anthony ervin will swim in the 50 meter freestyle. back to raj mathai live in london. really one of a kind in and out of the water. >> reporter: i love this story. i think it's one of the best
stories of all of team usa. you talked about anthony ervin. you might remember in the 2000 sydney olympics 12 years ago he won a gold. he took that gold medal and sold it on ebay with the proceeds he donated the money to charity. that's the kind of guy he is. anthony ervin, in oakland everybody calls him coach tony. he coaches a lot of inner city kids. he is a phenomenal guy in terms what if he does, tonight looking for a gold medal. he says he is a minimalist, doesn't have many belongings, doesn't even have an apartment or house yet. he likes his guitar and he likes the swimming pool. anthony ervin, coach tony, tonight in the water in the 50 freestyle. here is someone not a minimalist, michael phelps. he's got 20 medals and will be in the pool again looking for medal 21 in the 100 butterfly. last night he won the gold in the 200 individual medley.
so michael phelps continues to roll along. how about gabby douglas, 16, capturing the imagination and hearts of a lot of people. not just back in the u.s. but here also in london. gabby wins the gold medal in the all around competition in the individuals for gymnastics. at 14 she heft her family and friends in virginia, moved to iowa for a better training facility and it paid off. she's grown up before our eyes by winning the gold. >> i definitely knew that i would be the one or two, and it was exciting. it was an exciting moment. >> reporter: she is so sweet. by the way, we mentioned earlier. gabby douglas, the last name, if you rearrange the letters it spells usa gold. it has to be meant to be it we tried to rearrange the letters
for garcia-cannon. >> we'll play words with friends later. >> raj mathai, the cerebral reporting. how do you figure these out blows my mind but we love it. >> reporter: all right, guys. >> it's been fun out there. the energy of sweet gabby douglas, how can you not springboard off of that. gabby. >> thanks, raj. you know, to check out all of raj's updates all day, he's also on twitter as well, follow him @raj mathai. he's getting a chance to meet those great olympians. >> loving every minute of it bringing it to us. right now we're going to bring you weather. christina loren is here. >> let's bring you into your weekend with gorgeous conditions. good morning to you. as you get up, have that coffee, i want to show you what the sky over sunol look likes. mostly cloudy conditions there.
san jose, we are getting a nice clear start. take a look at this beautiful sun rise over the city. we have mid level clouds a few high wispy clouds. none of those low clouds yet. that will likely be the case probably 6:00 to 8:00 this morning. temperatures are crisp. 57 degrees in oakland and napa, 54 in san francisco. and yes, pat yourself on the back, you made it to friday. winds are going to make for a comfortable second half of the day into the weekend as they amplify. we saw the clock at 6:00, becoming breezy at that point. teen 20 miles per hour sustained winds so. what that means if you want to have a barbecue it's going to be comfortable. that breeze is out of the west ocean air, making for a really nice evening. and tomorrow we're going to get the same thing. cooler weather as high pressure starts to weaken and move to the east with a dip in the jet stream. so it stays nice just about all
weekend long inland we had to deal with 90s, upper 90s yesterday. take a look at the difference. 79 in los gatos and temperatures tumble as we head through tomorrow. down to 82 degrees, then we level out a bit sunday into tuesday. no extremes, no records. maybe some thunderstorms. we'll tell you where coming up. next week looks like friday and saturday could be active. here is mike. >> thunderstorms, going to get excited now. looking to the south bay nothing exciting, great news for morning commute. north of 680 with the sensors showing slowing. the volume of traffic starting to bump up. look at all of these folks and the metering lights, there they go, showing slowing getting off on the surface streets. a live look out through fremont,
880 past the gates. both directions move north of mission boulevard. the volume picks up so we're going to see slowing around that san mateo bridge interchange. back to the maps we're showing you a smooth drive. it's westbound so you have speeds where it's orange into the 40s and 50s, then closer to 60 where it's yellow. pretty much clearing before you get to the interchange. all of a sudden we have folks slamming on the brakes. no incidents reported but i'm tracking this because this is unusual. back to you. >> another pipeline scare for the san bruno neighborhood wiped out by a fire ball a few years ago a. contract ser apologizing after a construction cruise hit a gas line in nearly the same place where pg&e's pipeline exploded. the contractor admits that workers did not follow rules required before digging
underground. for people who live in the area the ordeal brought back painful memories. the line was capped within a half hour. >> it's a bitter tend to a charity bike ride. three riders say they rode into san francisco to have their van broken into. thieves took lap tops, ipads and gps devices and dozens of pictures of their charity ride. >> coming flew all of the other states and cities it seems weird we got robbed twice in one day. seems like they don't care as much as maybe other places. kind of hurt as little bit having our end destination not so much welcoming party. >> that is rough. the team has covered more than 4,000 miles raisinging money and awareness for the graves disease
and thyroid foundation a. fire outside of a los gatos apartment complex was no accident. the fire burned three cars and several trees. this all started about 6:00 last night. near the los gatos border with saratoga. nobody was hurt but several apartments had to be evacuated. the fire didn't reach the units and firefighters say yes, the fire does remain suspicious. >> coming up protesters tell chick-fil-a to kiss off. >> how about a kiss cam. we'll do that. >> a live look outside the golden gate bridge. you see some of the fog settling in. christina loren says it's going to blow out of there. it's friday.
